Stress Management at Work
Does your company want to address:
- Employee commitment to work
- Staff performance and productivity
- Accidents caused by human error
- Staff turnover and intention to leave
- Attendance levels
- Staff recruitment and retention
- Customer satisfaction
- Organisational image and reputation
- Potential litigation
When your company decides to promote stress managment with employees you can be sure it will yield economic benefits for your business or organisation, in terms of increased commitment and job satisfaction, staff retention, improved productivity and performance, and reduced staff absenteeism.
The costs associated with employees’ experiencing stress are significant for businesses and other organisations. These costs are associated with loss in productivity because of sickness absence, early retirement, and increased staff turnover, recruitment and training.
Evidence also shows that productivity can be reduced through the lower level of performance of employees who are at work but experiencing stress or mental health problems. This is known as ‘presenteeism’.
There is a cost effective and practical solution:
Our stress management courses are designed for staff and managers to recognise their stressors and to learn how they can begin to learn how to become more resilient to work place pressures.
Work place pressures impact the way that we work, how we cope with increasing demands from work, how we interact with our business clients and colleagues and our health and well being.
Since we spend a minimum of 8 hours of our waking day at work, tackling workplace stress is high on the HR managers’ agenda.
We will offer you and your staff a series of stress management tools, to learn how to become more resilient to the impact of workplace pressures.
Our practical based stress management course can be delivered in a short session or over a series of sessions.
We can incorporate one or more of the below during your stress management session:
